Back home, had a fun weekend in Tahoe (mostly driving to and from, truth be told) but I haven’t touched a computer since Saturday. Came back to find 3,103 comment spams. Gotta talk with Matt Mullenweg about that. Deleting them took quite a while because WordPress doesn’t like dealing with 3,100 spams all at once, so you gotta delete them in chunks. It’s quite possible I deleted some legitimate posts too, sorry about that. Oh, and those were only the ones being held for me to moderate. Akismet blocked more than 9,000 other comment spams too.
Anyway, I just got done reading my feeds and found a few goodies (these highlights are all on my link blog too — there’s tons more over on my link blog):
1. Flickr Ticker. A cool screen saver that runs in your browser and looks like the screen saver on Apple TV, of Flickr’s most interesting photographs. Who said amateurs can’t create beautiful images?
2. Vecosys says that 192.com is a lot better than Google Maps for images of London.
3. Google’s slow-moving commute busses get called evil. Slow moving things should NEVER be in the left lane. I hate that.
4. Nicole Simon interviews a bunch of speakers/organizers of the Reboot conference (one of the best in Europe). I’m listening to Thomas Madsen-Mygal as I type this. I love how I can learn from conferences I can’t attend this year thanks to Nicole.
5. Alan Reiter takes his Nokia N95 to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. and gets some moving images and a review of the N95. I want a N95 … are we witnessing the death of pocket cameras?
There’s a ton of other good posts too. Anyway, hope you’re having a good Monday.
